Crashed and busted my clavicle…

Nothin' to do with blues? The name says it all. You might try e-mail or Personal Message, but if those don't work for you, put it here, not in the blues forums above. Thanks!

I keep trying to come up with something encouraging to say but every time I open this thread I just cringe.

Er, heal well!

That's nothing! I got a paper cut and then got lemon juice in it!

He was just having fun. Admittedly, it stopped being fun very quickly, but having fun.

Small note: I had occasion to go to Stoke Mandeville hospital, the major spinal unit in Britain. The men's wards were ful of rugby players, the women's were full of horse riders. But these are acceptable middle class sports, so that's all right then, isn't it?

Funny, first couple days I thought he meant an Irish harp,
then maybe an auto harp,
but really you guys are talking Blues harp, right?
Or did he mean an angel's harp? :wink:
Lord keep that day, far far away.

Hey Max,
I got my arm back, and I'm working on getting the full range of motion. Stiff, can't reach for anything above my eye level. I can shift my car normally again, before I was steering with my knee as I reached over and shifted with my left, (we sit on the left side here). :lol:
I just sold that Epi G-400, and went and bought an Ibanez AG75, hollowbody with humbucks. Waitin' for delivery, eBay.
Sorry you had an OFF, but you're OK, and you can do it again.
I'm over with trying to get on the track, BUMMER!
We ain't got national health over here, and I ain't got overpriced health insurance. I'm having to sell 2 bikes to pay for a couple hours sitting in emergency, waiting for x-rays and a couple tabs of pain killer. Way over charged $$$$.

We have people here who think that health care should be privatised; they are making the mistake of believing it will be cheap.

I have a titanium rod in my right tibia, and all the preparatory and aftercare that went with it. I haven't bothered to find out what it would all cost, I know I couldn't have paid for it though.

The arm will recover. Tore the ligaments at the top of the left clavicle once, took longer than a break to heal. And more painful.

It will be cheap, for the wealthy!
Over here all the small fry Republican's think the party's all about what it tells them, but all it's done is absorb lobby money for reducing regulation for the biggest businesses, and reduce income and all other tax's for the most wealthy.
We got a Darwinian plutocracy here, but that's the way of DNA.
